The Snowman: Raymond Briggs’ The Snowman is one of the most beautiful and charming films ever made. Adapted from Raymond Briggs’ best-selling book and nominated for an Oscar in 1982, it is the story of a boy whose snowman comes to life at midnight, and the two embark on a series of magical adventures. The Snowman and The Snowdog: The Snowman and The Snowdog beautifully captures the magic and excitement of the original film as well as being a heart-warming story about love, loss and friendship. When a young boy, Billy, moves house, he discovers a secret box hidden under the floorboards – a snowman-making kit!

  • Perfection

    By David Gatfield
    I just loved all of it, a great price for both episodes plus the documentary. For my grandchildren who had never seen the Snowman and the Snow Dog it was just a delight. We will never grow tired of watching both episodes either at Christmas or whenever they want to watch them. Thank you, loved all of it.
  • Terrible version

    By Kuniform
    This version is retouched but cropped widescreen i.e. you miss a bit of the top and bottom of the screen - like the planets poster in the boy’s bedroom.
  • Classics

    By PeterCope
    It is perhaps questionable to call something a classic soon after its release but in the case of the Snowman and the Snowdog, that’s no idle boast. Like The Snowman it is beautifully crafted and beautifully told. Together they comprise the best of Christmas entertainment, and can be recommended for children and adults alike. Anything I don’t like? Only the iTunes price that as of Dec 2013, is somewhat higher than that of the Blu Ray
